Assassin’s Creed: Origins was announced and it looks amazing! A lot of details from trailers and announcements were released since its broadcast of publication. It seems like an addition to the franchise that will do some interesting changes and alterations from previous games.
First thing to notice that is shaking up the formula of Assassin’s Creed is that it will be taking up some RPG elements with more open elements from maps and free-roaming as well as actions for fighting. Another major revolution for the series is that it will be focusing on boss fights. It is something that Origins director Ashraf Ismail wanted to change in the franchise as he wants to open new doors for the game as he did for Black Flag.
There’s more to the world now than ever before in this game as you will not only play just your typical assassin in a small world or environment but rather exploring a larger world with several maps that include large pyramids that may tower over you but can climb and slide down upon, rivers to swim and fight crocodiles within and also fight in arena battles. Don’t be afraid though as you have more exciting weapons to use then before such as the khopesh, the new shield system, bow and arrows and much more.
Just like in the leaks that were from Reddit and 4chan, it turns out that the Eagle Scout turned out to be true and that the map synch point towers are no longer. The eagle companion is a new welcome to the series and makes the game feel fresh. It also makes Origins feel more alive and builds up the free-roam aspect higher as you can easily scan the area in a seamless way than just going point to point.
Apparently we will have a modern day hero for our protagonist but there will be old heroes returning which is amazing as we haven’t continued the story from old characters. The new assassin will interact with Rebecca, Shaun and William. It’s great to be able to finally play as someone important again than just the character in the past.
The fighting system seems to be more detailed than we have seen before as it takes combat from Unity and Syndicate but improves it much more with better counter attacks, smarter enemies, more stealth and epic weapons to try out.
Assassin’s Creed Origins seems to be an epic game and its actually coming out quite soon. The new instalment will be coming out October 27, 2017 on PS4, Xbox One and PC for $59.99.
